Boost Your Happiness
Last week I mentioned that we always have something of value, even if we don’t have what we wanted in the first place ( the idea only sounds rebellious, if we don’t try it ).
Today I want to share two projects that will help you to get creative with the idea of gratitude:
With the first one… you effortlessly create a memoir of 1825 meaningful, happy moments. “The Happiness Project – One Sentence Journal” by Gretchen Rubin is a lovely, little book where you can write down one grateful sentence a day. For 5 years. Memory cannot be relied upon… this book will collect the best of your life for you.
The second one is an idea of photo memoir: when you notice something beautiful – take a photograph. http://365grateful.com/homepage.htm is full of inspiring stories how lives can change because of changed perspective.
Research shows: Gratitude = Happiness
Do you have other creative ways to remember things you are grateful for? If so – please share!
UPDATE: Three years later I realized, I don’t get from gratitude as much as I’m getting from this… (click here)
